Build awareness of a highly innovative product
FlexSteel’s spoolable pipe combines the durability of steel with the flexibility of traditional spooled pipe. The goal was to educate the industry about a solution that was more cost effective, more reliable, easier to install and adaptable to nearly any environment or application.
Create a recognizable, differentiated brand
As a new arrival to the industry, FlexSteel needed to establish immediate credi- bility with the energy industry and reinforce the difference between its solution and other spooled pipes. The goal of rebranding was to show through visuals and messaging that FlexSteel outperformed all other pipeline solutions.
How Savage Brands built a brand around the technology
Rebrand FlexSteel to set it apart from its peers
We crafted a bold, industrialized brand personality to echo the strength, durabil- ity and flexibility of the product. The redesigned logo exaggerated the product’s flexible nature, and a corresponding system of icons reflected FlexSteel’s market applications. The new brand image extended across a full array of marketing collateral, including product literature, online presentations and tradeshow, promotion and field materials.
Educate the industry about the solution of the future
FlexSteel needed to generate awareness of the company, its products and its superior lifecycle performance. We designed communications ranging from high-concept awareness advertisements to detailed marketing materials and web content that clearly conveyed the value, installation and applications of FlexSteel’s product. Internal teams were coached on educating customers in how FlexSteel’s solution could improve their HSSE performance and bottom line.
Expand market share, domestically and internationally
Generating business leads was crucial for FlexSteel. Targeted web ads drove nearly three times the traffic to a newly redesigned website that educated visitors on how FlexSteel’s pipeline solution could improve their business. Print ads and creative direct mail campaigns brought additional leads, culminating in 38 new accounts in 2012, a 22% increase in the amount of FlexSteel’s revenue coming from international markets, and 67% overall revenue growth.
